    I am a busy medical student and I got a really bad color job from the Parlour and I asked my husband to come in and get a refund on my behalf and they threaten to call the police on him. My husband is disabled. I chose to go to it because I live in the neighborhood and I like to spend my money locally. This salon was really hit hard by the pandemic and I wanted to show my support even after my hair dresser left. The first red flag was that they told me that seven of their stylist had recently left and if I knew why my stylist had left. I told them I didn't stay with her because I want to spend my money in my neighborhood. I came in for my appointment and Maria did an awesome job cutting my daughter's bangs. She gave me an awesome hair cut but she did the worst color I have ever had. She colored my hair orange when I asked for ash blonde. She bleached it then but orange toner over it. She covered zero of my gray in front. It looks so bad I can't post a photo but I sent one to Maria who agreed to fix it. We made an appointment for the following Saturday. When I went to my appointment Saturday Maria was not there but no one told me that. They had no capes so they put me in a strange robe. I'm a medical student so I brought my study materials and my family came because my child goes to karate in the shopping center. I sat their first awhile a man who worked there came back with Shannon the owner and asked me why I was in the salon. I told them that I had an appointment with Maria to fix my hair. It was the most awkward experience I have ever had in a salon or spa. They said she wasn't there so I needed to make another appointment. It was finals week and my externship started right after. I made the appointment but realized I couldn't make it and asked for a refund for the color. They embarrassed me by having me sit in a chair studying when they knew Maria flaked on the appointment. You can read the screen shots below that demonstrate a complete lack of professionalism. Do not waste your money at The Parlour unless you want to pay a couple hundred bucks to look worse than you did before.

    I'm new in Encinitas. It was such a relief to find an expert like Shannon to do my hair. She cut,colored and balayaged my hair. I walked out feeling like a new woman. I called and Scott recommended her. I can see why. The place is comfortable, clean and I'm definitely going back. Thank you Shannon and Scott.

    If you want a great hair experience from beginning to end, you need to visit The Parlour in Encinitas! This husband and wife team are true professionals & not to mention couple goals! My 19 yr old daughter and I both loved our hair cuts & styling by Shannon. A true magician! Her talents shine through. The salon is beautiful & they accommodated us on short notice although they had a full schedule. We never felt rushed, we were greeted with welcoming smiles & good conversation. We are new to north county and feel so lucky to have found this special salon. Not only do they deliver great results, they are so kind. We love supporting local entrepreneurs and family run business'. Thank you for the new look & we look forward to next time!

    I searched for hair salons in the area and after reading reviews, I decided to give this place a shot and I'm so glad I did. The salon was really quick to respond and set me up with Susy, who was just as quick. She was able to get me in that week and was extremely friendly and professional. I never really know what to ask for but I trusted her and she was so right. I have never loved a haircut so much, so quick. She did amazing and made me feel super comfortable (which isn't always easy with social anxiety). I'm actually excited to come back. Thanks so much!

    Shannon has been coloring and cutting my hair for 20 years. I travel from WA state just to see her. She’s the only stylist that has ever been able to razor cut my hair. She has also transitioned my hair from color to gray. She’s the BEST!

    I love walking into The Parlour Salon. It’s so organic and uplifting. My stylist Shannon Arendsen always has me leaving feeling confident & amazing. My hair and texture are always so unruly. But she knows exactly what suits me. Whether it’s the balayage or how my hair needs to be cut and styled. I always leave with amazing products she recommends for my hair texture. I recommend The Parlour! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    This salon is a hidden gem. Tucked away near Smart and Final, you'd never expect what you see when you walk in.. a farmhouse modern, comfortable salon with some serious talent. I've been coming here for 6 years and I have been really happy with my hair. Pricing is also very reasonable. It doesn't hurt that they also server coffee, tea and wine!

    Shannon Arendsen is my stylist. She is professional and highly educated in cut and color. This past year and a half I have transitioned from coloring my hair to growing the grey. Shannon has made the transition a smooth process. My hair was long, reaching to my mid-back. She cut it short, a little past my chin, in a super stylish cut. I get complements daily! Not only on the cut, but on the grey! Shannon is the best. I highly recommend her.Sarah Brock-Brock Personal Training
